Anyone angry now kind of confuses me. Why care what happens behind the scenes? Care when it impacts the actual game.

Man you are out of touch... for the last 20 years gaming has gone to literal shit as tonnes of mouthbreathing souls have come online. Pre high speed internet we owned and controlled PC games. Once internet penetration was high enough game companies have literally stolen games and are charging for games and not giving anything back to the game community. F2P/mmo/online drm was the big plan to take control of game software away from gamers so they could exploit the stupid half of humanity for mad dollars. Now that they have gamers over a barrel thanks to the dumb half of humanity.

No level editors, sdk's, etc. Diablo 3 has fucking drm in it vs diablo 2 where it had lan and we controlled it. Same goes for starcraft 1 vs 2.

These companies have undermined game ownership to an extreme degree. There is no bottom to how worse it can get given we are already in the worst possible gaming world. The fact that people bought the marketing spin and gave over ownership of games to companies while buying items inside a game they don't own or control is fucking sad.

Games have started sucking because of the lack of ability of the gaming community to mod them. MTX incentivizes a gaming world where you get fed the developers vision of what a game is and can't modify it.

IT's a far cry from the gaming golden age from 1992 to about 2001. Before technology illiterate people came online on mass.

The fact that there are now single player gacha games where you fucking gamble to get in game items is fucking maddening.

Let's be real here, america is a fucked up country with a fucked people. A hyper predatory society that gives no fucks about anyone but themselves.

When you treat people like dogshit and have no social services to dial down the level of stress and exploitation in society school shootings are the result.

Canada is hardly any better with the liberals and conservatives mimicing the policies of the republicans and democrats down south. Canada hasn't had any real social service leanings since the 1970's. To call canada socialist means you don't really know much about canada at all. All the OECD stats point to canada being little america with a slightly better healthcare system if you are poor/working class.

Yep, the monetization killed this game, I don't know anyone still playing it.

You would think that Activision would take a hint about such issues, but no, they blindly go about their way....

Uhh everyone bought into games bicycle chained to computers across the internet, when that happened with the rise of mmo's, everything afterward was a downward slide. To have fucking diablo 3 have online drm in it is sickening enough.

If you paid for any mmo or steam infected game this is the end result.

More privacy "is horrible for the consumer"? Wow.

Valve is the biggest privacy violator on the internet, they pioneered drm and stealing gamers software rights to own their own shit away from them. Most AAA games have servers that are now required for the multi player functionality to even continue to work in most AAA single player games.

Pre high speed internet videogames couldn't be taken hostage. "software as as service model" cannot be made to protect your privacy if you use steam they have access to what you do and when you do it if you don't crack your game their software spies on you.

The very existence of steam is a privacy violation as soon as most games wrapped their games in steam works analytics it was over. Consumers are idiots. BY right steam shouldn't even exist but most people are fucking idiots.

I guess Quake just always has to compete with Unreal engine games- Lawbreakers was DOA and they just have to follow suit.

They should have never made quake champions f2p, quake and unreal were offline games both in single and multiplayer incarnations. If you are going to make an arena shooter, don't do it f2p.

The reality is old quake players like myself were expecting the future of gaming to be along the lines as it was in the 90's before the retarded masses showed up and fucked up gaming. F2p, mmo, steam all are signs of mass dumbness regarding technology.

Reality is quake should have never become a locked down f2p ridden fuck fest, it should have had a level editor /w sdk. Quake was what it was due to mods, level editing and a great multiplayer community. Take that all away and you don't have much game since quake 3 was roughly a tech demo and the quake community populated it with maps, skins, mods like threewave, rocket arena and opm.

I have no fucking clue what the people at bethesda are thinking but they are completely out of touch.

It baffles me why the developers insist on treating this like a privately hosted ARMA mod with matchmaking.

Because gamers proved to be stupid... as soon as everyone proved they were an idiot with mmo's - buying corporate malware infested games and buying into steam it was over.

The big plan was since the game industry was a part of the tech industry was to remove control of software from the user. We've seen the big push to make all games have always online drm. Diablo 3 being a case in point.

So no the era of dedicated servers that users control is likely over for good outside of small games.

The internet allowed companies to release only part of the game and hold part back at their computers at hq, that fucked up gaming because the average kid in generations after the 90's quake/doom generation has no computer literacy at all. AKA has no idea how computers work and is easily deceived.

From what I've seen of this game, it seems to just be a big one against all generic FPS. I don't see anything unusual or out of the ordinary that would warrant anything like a book, movie, franchise, etc. I'm sure it must be fun to play and all that, but random no-name people running around aimbotting each other doesn't seem to be a revolutionary concept.

Everything old is new again, you have to remember there are entire generations of human beings who never played the original doom, descent or duke nukem 3d or know anything about the history of FPS during the 90's.

There is an entire generation who's memory starts after xbox and wouldn't have a clue about how computers work or anything else. That's why the software market for games and everything else is fucked up beyond all recognition the average person on our planet is incredibly mind blowingly dumb.

That's the part I don't understand either. Who is the target audience for this?

The same target audience DRM was for - big business, they are trying to develop a system where the game is entirely locked down and streamed to you from servers. See EA's ceo during the conference call to Deutsche bank.

They are trying to never have software controlled by the gamer. Most people already have given up way too much control buying server locked games and windows 10 anyway. Basically they already have stolen the software we pay for by reprogramming it to obey the corporations and it will get worse.

Everyone is trying to undo the freedom for computer users for profits.

I don't get all the hate.

Then you should go pick up some retro copies of quake 1/2/3 and download user made mods, maps and levels. The thing with new AAA games is they remove control from the player and make you pay for what used to be free and everyone shared. The level of fuck you in modern AAA games is off the charts. You really don't understand how badly PC games have been fucked over with this new generation of kiddies who never gamed on PC during the 90's.

If you really want to understand the rage, go pickup old PC games made during the 90's, their level editors and maps/mods. You'll start to understand why there is such rage at modern gaming.

For those reminiscing about the meatiness of 90s era shooter expansion packs,

You seemed to miss the part with level editors that came with games. The build editor in duke nukem, descent, warcraft, etc. AAA gaming post 90's has been an utter fucking disaster.

We no longer get dedicated servers with most games and if they have some kind of server option they are completely controlled by the company. AKA we lost control of the software completely. The matchmaking bs is just drm by another name.

RPG's were rebranded mmo and went largely totally autocombat - aka combat systems devolved into watch fests because the average mmo player is a reflexless chimpanzee.

Yeah sure, let's ignore the entire history of PC gaming and equate expansions with microtransactions.

Jesus christ you're dumb if you believe this, the last 20 years of PC gaming has been a disaster with the acceptance of drm and mmo's having normalized basically renting games in perpetuity from game companies, very little on the dedicated server side and mod tools from major AAA games compared to the 90's.

Modern game 'expansions' were nothing like the meaty content expansions we had in the 90's. Look at how Starcraft 2 was cut up into three parts and LAN was removed. Look at how diablo 3 had always online drm put into the single player portion of the game just to get those auction house microtransactions.

Look at how quake 3 is a fucking microtransaction ridden f2p game that you don't own or control and they are selling fucking unlocks in a game you don't own nor control.

It's not Intel and nVidia's fault that AMD hasn't been able to compete

Actually... Intel bribed companies not to use AMD chips way back in the athlon days and that denied amd necessary funding for all the R&D money they spent on it. That move extremely wounded AMD pretty badly. So to say it's all amd's fault is a bit of bullshit.

History of intels abuses against AMD since the beginning

Intel fined for unfair business practices

I have no desire to see online multiplayer gaming go down in flames, although I haven't played it since a capture the flag match in Quake 3 years ago.

Man the whole of the human species is dumb...

We've single handedly had games stolen from us and trapped on the other side of the internet and everything that used to be free with free level editing tools and mods has been curtailed/taken away out of most AAA games and then put in fucking lot boxes... can you imagine having skins/maps and mods in quake 3 that we used to have for free put into loot boxes? It's fucking insanity. I wouldn't mind if league of legends and dota 2 cancer got bitten by bs legislation.

Those games pioneered fraud on a massive scale. That's exactly what they are. MMO's, steam and microtransaction ridden crap were ways to move software off gamers PC's.

The fact that humanity ate it up is why PC gaming is such a disaster compared to the 90's.

Loot boxes are the natural progression of you people accepting mmo's and steam, as soon as people bought a server locked game it was over. The entire mission of the game industry was to take software control away from customers. That has been going on since the days of Ultima online, everquest and wow.

Speaking as someone who's been playing FPSes since the original Wolfenstein came out, you are objectively wrong.

No it's that you don't see reality as it is. Overwatch 1) Has no real level editor and 2) no dedicated servers you control.

Objectively inferior to openly modded games in the 90's. You have a very poor memory or were never a heavy multiplayer gamer during the kali/kahn days. If you don't even know what kali/kahn is you're probably a casual gamer.

I haven't played in ages and feel no urge to. Just wondering is it still going strong?

Still boring as fuck really, overwatch is just a really oversimplified multiplayer shooter that anyone who is old has played before and played better.

It really exists only because it was released by blizzard and unto the cult of bliz fans. The game is just very boring over time. It just can't hold a candle to past fps games esp if you grew up on them in the 90's.

Overwatch is just like modern blizzard - all flash, no substance.
